CEIOPS has published a report on outsourcing by institutions for occupational retirement provisions (IORPs). It has carried out a survey looking at:

  • how Member States treat different functions of IORPs in terms of transfer of functions to third party providers; 
  • what requirements Member States apply to outsourcing under EU law and where they go beyond any Directive; and 
  • whether there are any problems with EU law as it applies to outsourcing by these bodies.
